TREE Fund will host a webinar titled “The Salt Dilemma: Growing Better Urban Trees in Northern Climates” on February 5.
It will be presented by James Urban, FASLA, Urban Trees + Soils; Andrew Millward, Ph.D., Ryerson University; Adam Nicklin, Public Work.
Can urban trees and city winter weather protocols peacefully co-exist? This webinar will discuss the latest research findings related to successfully growing trees under these conditions. Dr. Andrew Millward will walk attendees through his investigation of the surprising decline and mortality of trees planted using soil cells in a recent urban revitalization project in Toronto. While the research findings pointed to salt, there were a number of other factors. The project opened a discussion about changes to the way we design and manage urban trees. Adam Nicklin will offer options to reduce salt damage to trees, and talk about the role landscape architects can play in helping the urban canopy thrive.
The webinar will be held Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at Noon Mountain time. Earn 1.0 CEU from ISA, SAF, NALP or LACES; must watch live broadcast to receive CEU credit.
Webinar will be archived within one week of broadcast at treefund.org/webinars.
